Ontic Sports is pleased to announce that the 2021 MRF Tyres Australian Production Cars season will hold its Grand Final at the Bathurst International.

The hotly anticipated Bathurst International will host what will be the fifth and final round of the 2021 MRF Tyres APC season on the hallowed grounds of Mount Panorama across November 26-28.

With a grid capacity of 55 cars, Ontic Sports has introduced a ‘season pass’ concept to ensure regular APC competitors fighting for a season title can ensure they don’t miss out on what is sure to be an exceptionally popular event.

“Mount Panorama is always the number one circuit for all motorsport competitors when it comes to their wish lists – Ontic Sports’ competitors are no different,” Ontic Sports General Manager, Troy Williams, said.

“With the rising profile of the Bathurst International, it is also great recognition that the MRF Tyres Australian Production car series continues to be the premiere sprint series for 3E Production Cars nationally.

“Launching today, we have 40 APC season passes available which will allow our regulars to enter for all of our APC events for 2021 while guaranteeing their spot on the grid for the Bathurst International.

“Beyond the Season Pass holders, the remaining Bathurst International APC grid spots are open throughout the year for expressions of interest from non-regular competitors via the APC website. Invitations to compete for non-regular APC competitors will distributed in the first week of October based on the EOIs submitted by that time.”

Competitors interested in securing their spot on the Bathurst International grid by way of a season pass should contact Troy Williams on troy@onticsports.com.au

The Bathurst International round of the 2021 MRF Tyres APC season will consist of 4 x 30-minute races. As announced earlier, rounds one through four will be held as part of the Shannons Motorsport Australia Championships at Sydney Motorsport Park (May 1-2), Morgan Park Raceway (June 25-27), Sandown Raceway (September 10-12) and Tailem Bend Motorsport Park (October 15-17).

“What a mix of events we have in store for 2021 with four great events with the Shannons Motorsport Australia Championships at some of this country’s best race tracks ahead of a grand finale at none other than the hallowed grounds of Mount Panorama – it doesn’t get any better than that,” Williams said.

Hosted by the Australian Racing Group (ARG), the Bathurst International will bring the world’s best racing categories to Australia’s greatest motorsport venue.

All of the event action will be broadcast live and free to viewers on the Seven Network in Australia, Sky Sport in New Zealand and Motorsport.TV for international viewers.

“The APC is a great national category and one that we are very happy to have on the program for the Bathurst International,” ARG Chief Executive Officer, Matt Braid, said.
